You are wrong if you think Mathematics is not fun

Mathematics studies neighborhoods, groups and free groups, rings, ideals, holes, poles and removable poles, trees, growth …

Mathematics also studies models, shapes, curves, cardinals, similarity, consistency, completeness, space …

Among objects of mathematical study are heredity, continuity, jumps, infinity, infinitesimals, paradoxes…

Last but not the least, Mathematics studies stability, projections and values, values are often absolute but may also be extreme, local or global.

Trigonometry aside, Mathematics comprises fields like Game Theory, Braids Theory, Knot Theory and more
